How The Law Office of Nicole C. Morris, P.A. Resolves Complex Probate Issues
After years of managing estates, our firm can disentangle the complex and sometimes contradictory requirements of cross-state probate management by identifying vital information such as:
- Is there a will in place and, if so, is the will valid and does that will account for ancillary probate?
- Who is the executor of the estate and are they also responsible for estate management in the other relevant jurisdiction
- What logistical management issues, like death certifications and obituary requirements, apply to the estate in each jurisdiction
- Which debts and liabilities are relevant to the estate and what property is subject to debtors?
State-to-state laws surrounding probate vary. While the underlying principles may be the same, the logistical elements and some legal issues may differ. Our legal team can assist you during estate administration and probate conflicts.
